What a great training experience the 2010 MARS Instructor Training Camp was this past weekend. It was great to reconnect with people that I hadn’t seen in five plus years. Plus I got to meet some new people from all around the world that were real amazing.
Speaking of amazing, all the instructors put on a great class witness awesome material. The saturation on the topics was top notch.
I can’t wait until May of 2011 to do it all again!!!
For some of you, you will not have to wait that long to train with Guro Ron Balicki. We have scheduled him to come and do a seminar for us in October!!! That is right, Guro Ron is coming back to Texas 😉
We had an spawesome class at 6am with five people!!!
It was really cool to see that many people again in that time slot. Just gives you more motivation to get up that early and teach!
I ran home for a quick breakfast.
Talk about multiple-tasking…. Cooking, laundry, dishes and packing all at once LOL.
Always fun to have timely deadlines on tasks. Even better to complete them. I think that gives us a sense of accomplishment which is what we need.
Off to Martial Way to finish lesson plans for the day.
I had a blast in the video shoot with JB and Sandy. They were really nice and fun to work with. I hope the editing comes out well and I can’t wait to see it.
Afterwards it was off to my first of two lunch meetings on a invention/project that I have been wanting to create. Many months in the running and four pro to-types later we have something that rocks! Now it is just down to costs to get the inventory made. Almost there.
Speaking of… Something I have noticed lately is that when we create action steps from our ideas as well as meetings it helps formulate a plan. That plan goes in to play when we set deadlines to it. For example you have six task due in six days. So the easy math is that you finish one task per day. The problem though is we often don’t schedule the task so therefore we won’t have time to do it. Schedule it and it shall be done 😉
Second lunch meeting went great as well. We were at Mr. tramps trying to scout the best way to run our next UFC Event. We came up with some really good ideas so I can’t wait to see it come to life. At this point though I am running a little behind schedule so I had to cancel my training time 🙂
On a plus I was able still hang with Lauren. She cracks me up. So competitive right now. She hadps to race in everything…. Oh and win too LOL. She helps me remember things that are important. Another plus was I finalize lessons, meet a new potential Tiger for our awesome chidren’s class and…. Finish packing all our clothes and equipment.
Jamie and I made it to the airport with plenty of time. It was kind of quiet there which was nice. A little BBQ and we were boarding for LA.
On the plan it was nice because we could spread out over three seats and relax while planning some more things for the school.
A quick nap and BOOM we are here.
Shuttle and rental car went quick and we were in our hotel room unpacking in no time. Getting in a little late left us with only Denny’s as a decent dinner option; but it wasn’t bad. Bed fairly early and we will be ready to get up early tomorrow and work before the seminar…. Then train like beasts 😉
I am sooooo pumped!!! This has been a long time coming. We are now uploading four videos a week that you can view directly at our YouTube or FaceBook Page. The following Week we will be linking each one to the martialway.net website which will be awesome!!!
Look forward to seeing new things from us each week as we try to pick beginner, intermediate and advanced material.
Welcome to the next revolution!!!!

Fun day and fast
Been very easy lately
6am class rocked
Ran home and packed up for the day
Hit my favorite coffee shop Cafe Java
Got some good work done while I waited on Lauren to join me
We headed in to Martial Way and finished up some lesson plans
Was difficult getting caught up and switching computers
Really nice to have mine back though
I am definitely missing some software and will need to gather my discs to reinstall
Awesome to see our spinning wheel in for the Summer of Fun Drawings and the Karate Kid event
Shot up to Round Rock to pick up my mother from the hospital
She is really doing great after her surgery
It really didn’t seem to bother her much either which was good to see
Lauren was a little curious about it so Nana showed her what it looked like when she got dressed
She was soooooo funny in the elevator because she told a doctor that her Nana only has one booby LOL
Nana just laughed
Got her home safe and sound and then headed back to Martial Way
It was nap time for Lauren and I think maybe me too 😉
No time for that though Dr. Jones
Quick trip for me to Compuzone which is my favorite Mac Shop
Gave them back their rental and got some more of my data from them
Back to Martial Way just in time to finish my last lesson plan and get ray for our Tiger childrens class
The kids were on today too which was cool
I think they were also very stoked about the Summer of Fun Ticket Drawings too
Great job with the new Powerful Word of the month – FOCUS!
American Top Team MMA class was a little small but we got some good sparring in
Also started working on the new things we are adding to the working curriculum like the new tie up drills
Could not stay after that
I was really looking forward to working out some more and sparring
Dance class was fun and funny all at the same time
If you really want to have some good laughs then you can watch a bunch of dads dance for their daughters this Sunday
Let me know and I can get you more information on it 😉
Ran was hard to drive in but made it home safely
He really is developing into a good dog
